Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Curious George goes Christmas tree shopping with the man in the yellow hat, and climbs into a tree that gets delivered to a children's hospital. Although lost, the little monkey makes the best of the situation by decorating the boughs with such items as gauze, X-rays, and crutches and by changing the name tags on all the presents. All ends well as the young patients are entertained and the man with the yellow hat arrives to collect his companion. The text is stilted, and both the plot and illustrations owe a great deal to Margret and H. A. Rey's Curious George Goes to the Hospital (Houghton, 1966). Still, the illustrations capture the look, if not the flavor and charm, of the originals, and so this book will likely be popular with young Curious George fans.–Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library

Review

Children who love Curious George will like this latest adventure, and the story is shorter and more accessible than some of the longer original entries in the series.

My son (almost 3) loves this book and we have to read it almost every night before bed, since I got it around Thanksgiving. :)

Excellent book. My 6 & 7 year olds are still Curious George fans and both enjoyed this book. Even though the book is not written by H.A. and Margret Rey, it is certainly consistent with their original series in the innocent mischief of this friendly monkey at a hospital at Christmas time.

(Illustrations by Mary O'Keefe Young done in the style of H.A. Rey)

Curious George is pure "Curious" in this Christmas gift to children.

As usual his curiosity gets him into situations that make children laugh. First he and his friend in the yellow hat went to a Christmas tree far to select their special tree. Of course George could not stop being curious, jumping from to tree, finally to the tallest tree.

When men come to cut down this tree, George is hiding in the tallest branches and cannot escape so he is taken along with the tree to a children's ward at a hospital.

George livened up these sick children's lives, making them smile and even laugh as they decorated the tree. Of course, he drove the staff a little crazy with his antics.

Mischievous Curious George was brought to lift more than 60 years ago by Margret and H.A. Rey. Think how many generations of children he has entertained. Are you one of them?

Armchair Interviews says: Curious George has done it again!

My four year old nephew is a faithful curious George fan. He loves the books and the television programs. As my nephew is a curious little fellow who sometimes gets into trouble for his own investigations, he finds a kindred spirit in the cheeky little monkey who always tumbles into his adventures.

My nephew loves to hear this story (over and over and over), and he loves to discuss all the items in the book's richly, clever illustrations--especially when George first decorates the tree with items he finds in the children's hospital---X-rays, crutches, cups, cards, medical supplies! One of his favorite story moments is when the nurse is picking up the naughty monkey to remove him from the hospital. Ah, but the children and my nephew beg for him to stay!

Reading to children is important. Reading builds personal connection, observation, critical thinking, and language in ways that today's loud, obnoxious video games and automated toys do not. The Curious George books continue teach and reach generations of children. They are a family favorite here, and they are always welcomed.

A bonus of this book is that my nephew is learning some health / hospital vocabulary in a fun, non-threatening way. This book opens the door to talk to children about children who might be sick or hurt or who might have to have extended stays in the hospital. It allows for a discussion about why some people may need X-Rays, crutches, canes, wheelchairs, etc. With adult guidance, a child can learn empathy and compassion for others through this book. Of course, bringing comfort and cheer to those who need it the most also speaks to the spirit of Christmas.

The book is a lovely edition to my nephew's library of favorite tales. We believe that fans of Curious George Goes to the Hospital would enjoy this Christmas book.

I got a copy of this book after Christmas at Target. I paid a lot more for it than on this site. I found the same book here and shipped to home for less than what I paid for at the after Christmas sales. I wish I could buy all of my Christmas presents this way.

This book was a nice addition to our Christmas Book Advent Calendar. This is the first year I did the Book Calendar so I had to buy at least half of the books to round out the stack we already owned from previous years gifts. In typical George fashion he gets into some kind of mischief that ends up working out in a happy way. In this book George gets stuck in a Christmas tree that makes its way to a children's hospital where George tries to help decorate it and make the gifts look better by changing around the bows and name tags. Of course this makes one of the nurses mad and when she is escorting George out, all of the children at the hospital are cheered up by his silly antics and beg her to let him stay. It's a nice enough book with even a visit from Santa thrown in and my daughter seemed to enjoy it, which is the most important part.

My 3.5yr old is currently obsessed with Curious George. We have 2 collections of his books and go to the library for the rest. When I saw this, I thought it would be perfect for his annual xmas photo that includes a book. The book is always what he is into at that point if I can help it. It arrived today and we began reading immediately. He LOVED it! He has a photographic memory when it comes to books and, right after I finished reading, he "read" it to me. I see this as our new favorite bedtime story!

This is an adorable Christmas book for fans of Curious George. Although not written by the original Curious George creators, it is true to their vision in spirit. George is out with the Man in the Yellow Hat looking for a Christmas tree when he ends up stuck in one as it gets cut down, and taken to the children's ward of a hospital. George decides to use hospital supplies, and ribbons and tags from the presents in the room, to decorate the tree, creating lots of havoc. Sweet and fun.
